State Police, which presently are understaffed because of budget problems and freeing up troopers to go back to their highway patrol duties.

I doubt the BDL airport assignment is high on the list of choice assignments for a State Trooper, probably the reason why he never smiled.

Mr. Elliott
I understand that.

I had an uncle that was a Ky. State Policeman and he was often called upon to work University of Kentucky basketball games. He absolutely hated it, even though UK tickets are one of the hardest to get in college sports. He had to watch the crowd and not the game. If he was caught watching the game too much he was reprimanded. It was torture.

He was serious as well. After retiring from KSP, he went back regular army and became CSM of the Kentucky National Guard. There is nothing more serious than a CSM.
